Bruce Springsteen unveils 'Just Like Fire Would' video with Tom Morello - watch

The track is taken from his Number One album 'High Hopes'

Bruce Springsteen has unveiled the video for 'Just Like Fire Would', taken from his new album, 'High Hopes'.

The track is a cover of Australian band The Saints' 1986 song. The video sees Springsteen playing along with the E Street Band and Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello, who features prominently on 'High Hopes'. Click above to watch the promo.

Bruce Springsteen scored his 10th UK Number One Album with 'High Hopes'. The Boss' latest record now puts him ahead of acts such as David Bowie, ABBA, Queen and Michael Jackson, who have all had nine UK Number One albums, but puts him level with U2, The Rolling Stones and Robbie Williams.

Tom Morello has spoken about how he came to be involved in Bruce Springsteen's new record, saying: "In December of 2012 I was driving around Los Angeles and listening to E Street Radio on SiriusXM. The song 'High Hopes' came on and I had heard it before, but I was reminded of what a jam it was. I thought that might be a fun one to play. So in the middle of the night I sat in my driveway and I texted Bruce and said, "What do you think about 'High Hopes' for the upcoming thing?' He put that in the set. It just felt like a potential riff-rocker. It felt like it was a little in my wheelhouse of riffage, and I thought it would just be fun to rock out."
